  1. i recently bought a 9600 pro graphics card from ebay without the driver disc (stupid i know, but it was a bargain...or so i thought).

    i downloaded the latest drivers from the ati site and device manager registered them and recognised the card, but photos and text has lines down them, so does video when i play it.

    also, games look like this. notice the blocks all over the place in a pattern

    any help you can give to help solve this would be greatly appreciated

    You could try putting the card in another computer, just to check if it still does the same thing.

    Other than that, get rid of it.

    Regards Howard :)

    I can`t give you an opinon, because I don`t play games. Hence the Geforce4 mx4000 in my system lol.

    I`m sure other members will give you an opinion though.

    Regards Howard :)
